thule roof rack can fit

lots of people say to just get the yakima rack. and obviously for best fitment that is the best way. for some of us however, we already have a full thule set up and just want to use it, instead of dropping another 500 more or less bucks on a new one.

my personal use for roof rack will be to transport snowboards and skis to the hills and mountains, therefore its not a heavy load. meaning i do not require the roof rack extensions.

i went through quite a lot of trial and error to find that the 2008 honda civic mounts fit the best. after lots of readjusting i found the perfect fit. it is very solid and not damaging the car.

these mounts are the curved style mounts as opposed to the rain gutter style mounts.


if you were to get some shorter arms to grad the door frame then this fitment would be ever better but i couldn't be bother.

so yes, you can use a thule roof rack on our little rsx's.

Does this require drilling any holes? Also does that go under the weather stripping and this a hard process?

I know that it's been years since this was first posted but do you have the part number for the fit kit from the 2008 Honda Civic? Is it a coupe? I'm having trouble finding what to get to use my Thule rack on our RSX. Please help. Thanks!
